Garbage. That sort of thing can't be done by executive order.

Note: we will not discuss executive orders here and the subject has been fully discussed in this thread, this thread, and this thread. If you don't understand why the President can't by executive order mimic the New York law, read those threads. If you don't understand after reading those threads, we can't help.

People may be afraid, but the fear regarding executive orders is largely based on not understanding what executive orders are, how they work, and what can and cannot be done with them. This is discussed in the threads I've linked to.
